Inscription.  The Justice Chapel Baptist Church was organized in 1894 under the leadership of Rev. C.J. Justice and Brother Willie Davenport and his wife. Other leaders in this early church were Rev. Eddie Moore, Brother Eddy Green, Brother Frank Cook, Mathis Shead and his wife, Brother Joe Profet, and Brother Joe Hardy Green. The members built a brush harbor for their worship services. In 1897 Rev. John Landers was called as their pastor. Their first church was built on this present site in 1913. After a storm destroyed that building in 1935, the dedicated members built the church presently in use by the congregation.
